Lexar biometric JumpDrive TouchGuard

Dan Wu

Lexar JumpDrive TouchGuardMuch like Sony's Micro Vault, Lexar's USB 2.0 JumpDrive TouchGuard is a flash drive with a biometric reader and sensor that allows you to unlock your encrypted data, stores your browser favorites, and remembers passwords to your favorite sites via fingerprint authentication. We like the fact that no additional software or drivers are necessary to make this work on your Windows 2000/XP box, there's tough AES 256-bit encryption, and that the 256MB version will only cost around $70 when it comes to stores next week. But will its security countermeasures stay tried and true? As with all things security and crypto, only time will tell (just don't bet the bank on it).
